            Pleasant hotel with good food and decent service. The pool was nice. A variety of activities during the day. A good indoor childrens play room.

            The rooms advertised on the Internet are club rooms - this is deceiving as the standard of the other rooms is very average. The service could be improved, there is no service around the pool, so no drinks, snacks etc. Also they do not keep spare floaties, etc for kids. The activities were fine but could be better. In summary, a pleasant stay but not a resort I would go back to.

            Leela came like heaven to earth for us. After being on the go and so alert during all our trip in the big, overwhelming cities of the north, we came to the beauty of the South. We stayed 3 nights and it was just wonderful. Very relaxing; food is great; they have resort type of activities for free (cooking classes, tennis classes, yoga, etc). The spa is ok... I wouldn't say that I loved my massage but it was a nice experience. Definitely stay here... It's a great choice in Kerala!

            All staff were very friendly, full of attentions for us. This is a really a beautiful place and the weather is great. We enjoyed the various restaurants and bars too. This week end will stay in our memories for a while.

            Perfect location for a short week-end break Staff is absolutely perfect

            Although we really enjoy the beach, it is nowhere close to such an expensive 5 stars hotel standards. Same relmark for swimming pools, too small, not well located and not attractive.

            Hi! Nice location, friendly staff and good food. Very good of you to let us check in early, welcome for the guest is good, the spa is good, the swimming pool and the location are excellent.

            This is our 3rd visit / stay at Leela. The rooms are expensive than the best hotel rooms in New York. The service has slipped a great deal, the staff are very slow to respond to one's needs, do not attend to guest immediately. You have to ask for menu/ or service. Too many staff milling around doing very little/ or with no specific responsibilities. Staff uniforms are very old and not smart enough for this type of hotel. The food is too expensive, the foyer is too hot and not enough air condition to keep it in a comfortable level of temperature.

          • Family with children
            6.6

            Good location and well spread out property

            I did not quite think that their service matched the price that they charge. While the general staff was friendly and courteous, they were only providing details when asked for - found their responsiveness to be a bit slow.

            Everything was excellent, wonderful.... No words to explain our happiness in leela.... Thanks a lot!!! The best hotel in Kerala, smily, clean, super ;-)))))))

            10.0

            Excellent views from the room. The room was luxuriously set up. The service and food was excellent. There was absolutely nothing to fault. The staff were very very friendly and helpful. The reception on arrival was very interesting. we were welcomed with a garland and fresh coconut water. There is a complimentary electric buggy to transport you to the beach. The seafood restaurant on the beach (within the hotel premises) served excellent food. Truly world class standards.

            Nothing. Everything was great.

          • Family with children
            8.2

            Very nice and helpful staff particularly in the restaurants.

            Restaurant was too crowded on weekends. Gym was the most basic I have seen. No music. For such a large resort a much larger gym is most essential.
